This juice is part of an anti-inflammatory cleanse I love to do when I’m injured, as it is packed with anti-inflammatory foods that can play a big party in reducing inflammation and promoting a quick recovery. Pineapple contains the protein-digesting enzyme bromelain, which aids the digestive system, inhibiting the action of a number of inflammatory agents. it also helps to alleviate fluid retention which means recovery from injuries and surgery. When you eat or juice pineapple, don’t remove the core as that is where the highest tore of bromelain is found. Carrots contain powerful antioxidants such as beta-carotene and Vitamin C, they boost our immunity and help fight internal inflammation in the body. I love adding ginger to my juices for an amazing sharp kick, that compliments the sweetness of the pineapple. Ginger is also a strong anti-inflammatory and an incredible healer. Ginger also improves the absorption and assimilation of essential nutrients in the body, so it will help you to benefit even more from these wonderful foods!
2 cups chopped pineapple
a thumb-nail size cube of ginger
Juice 1/2 lemon
1 tsp wheatgrass powder (I use Organic Burst )
Peal the ginger and put the pineapple, carrots and ginger through your juicer. Mix with juice of 1/2 a lemon.
If your using wheatgrass powder put the powder at the bottom of a cup and pour in a small drizzle of the juice, stir quickly to make a smooth paste before slowly pouring the rest of the juice in – stirring as you go.
